Myers at Belconnen has 2 HP mini Netbooks for sale if anyone is in the
market. Old models, but you'd expect warranty.

$349 1109TU - Atom N270 1.6Ghz, 1Gb RAM, *60*GB drive, black
IIRC $399 1118TU - N270, 1GB, 80GB drive, *red*

No idea of battery life/size.

I believe displays are 10.1", 1024x600. Intel GMA 950 (perhaps)

Why didn't I buy one of them?

I'd probably end up not using it very much :-(
There are a few pieces on the Net about problems in usability and
robustness... Not to mention, wee-beaties go more than a little slowly..

Compared to current model, not a "great" deal - good, but not great.

RRP $599 for HP Mini 110-1157TU PC
 + Atom N280 1.66 GHz, 512 KB L2 Cache, 667 MHz FSB (vs 533 for N270)
 + 250 GB 5400 rpm drive

Hope this is useful to someone :-)
